An excellent book. Philbrick writes in a clear and straightforward style, and makes well-reasoned arguments about the battle even when trying to reconcile conflicting reports about what actually happened. He deftly manages to avoid the pitfalls of excessive political correctness. There are good photographs and copious notes. And there are wonderful detailed maps that make the progression of events much easier to understand.

An excellent telling of the Battle of the Little Big Horn-clear and easy to read. Well researched and tells all sides of the battle. Definitely worth reading!

History books are usually boring. This is a rare exception. This reads like a novel. Philbrick's writing is clear and concise. Besides the way he writes there are 2 other aspects to this that make this a very enjoyable read: Philbrick's character feel at the end that you knew all these main characters and second the 18 maps. In historical military fiction, maps are (to my mind) essential elements...this book has a plethora of maps that allow you to see and visualize what happened on another level. This book is a pleasure to read.
